I’m so looking forward to seeing this new painting at the Kimbell.
On the second segment or tthis week’s Modern Art Notes Podcast, Kimbell Art Museum director Eric Lee discusses the Kimbell’s recent acquisition of Jacob van Ruisdael’s Edge of a Forest with a Grainfield (above), which will go on view at the museum later this month. The painting is considered one of the finest Dutch landscapes in the world.

Early this evening, before the storms, I happened to find myself at the HEB Central Market Café (Westgate) whereupon I noticed the Monday special was chicken fried steak. Always up for trying a restaurant chicken fried steak, I ordered it.
It only took a few bites for me to realize that it was terrible. Examine the photo - the breading was all wrong. It shouldn’t just flake off, seperated from the meat like that.
When I went back up to the counter, I noticed the employees were all wearing shrouds, and thinking nothing of it, I asked the figure “Who made this awful chicken fried steak?”
“We don’t have names here..” the figure hissed.
It’s very difficult finding a restaurant that can make a good chicken fried steak.
Nice try, Kurt.

"Cash or charge?"
"Oh gosh, cash, I guess. I mean it’s not deductible, is it."
